The Great Himalayan Jungle Walk
One of biggest jungles of India, dense, green and full of wild animals; and you have to walk 4 days over 50 km. Believe us it's safe ! We will walk with local villagers, going to stay in their homes and understand the way they and nature live together. Don't think that this is going to be a boring tour. The fun part is we are going to cross rivers, bath in them, walk the path less taken, click pictures, witness amazing birds, meet several unsung heroes and generate our own sensitivity towards nature and sustainable living.
The walk will start from Nainitaal and will end in Ramnagar, with 3 nights stay in camp and villages !
What's Special About The Walk !
The walk is special in itself, but the most special part is Sir Jim Corbett himself. Yes, we are going to live his stories walk on his trails and do a bit of time travel. From Nainitaal to Kaladungi, he almost uses to walk every day in just 3 hours, we will do it with one night stop. His stories over bonfire sound best ! The trails he took, the places from where he saw tigers at a mere distance, the canal he uses to walk with. The villages where we are going to stay, their work towards community and eco-tourism. The birdwatching sessions and talks around causes, everything is special.
But the most special part is you ! You the one who decided to walk in jungles, you the one who are in love with nature, you are the one who are in love with villages. Just Walk.
